A little ruff-cut Documentation from one of my current Projects, installed for the anniversary of #jan28.
Boiling Point. - A Physical & Sonic Manifestation of a Re-tweeted Revolution
This was the 1st prototype of a new installation commissioned for a mini winter festival at Atelier 231, Rouen France, for the anniversary of #jan28. The focus of this version was the Tweets written during and from within the Revolution in Tahrir Square, voiced through 35 voices in English, French and Arabic, channelling 35 bloggers tweet streams, through suspended speakers, clustered in groups around 3 real fires. Those hanging closest to the fires were the more prolific and 'followed' bloggers/tweeters, gathering in a real audience to the fire in the winter night. Each speaker also pulsed in light as they spoke.

• I have just received a grant commission from Without Walls to R&D the next phase of this project, building towards a tour-able model which will incorporate live-streaming in 2013.
